My high school was a private school where you went to an Ivy League. That's just what was expected of you and nothing less. So I grew up never being okay with a 'B' because a 'B' was not good enough.
Being humble matters.
The World Is Not Enough
The fragrance of flowers spreads only in the direction of the wind. But the goodness of a person spreads in all directions.
Nothing will work unless you do.
